Pakistan army on Saturday accused the Border Security Force (BSF) of resorting to “unprovoked” firing along the Line of Control (LoC) near Nezapir sector of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) on Eid. While no casualties were reported, the ISPR, Pakistan military’s media wing, said such violations were regular on festive occasions.
